Most days I have very little reason to really get ready, but I still do it because it makes me feel better. Something about putting a little make-up on gets me ready to start my day, even if it only consists of working out, going to the grocery store, and changing diapers. I thought I'd share some of my tried and true favorites with y'all today. Most of these are drug store finds with a couple of "high end" products thrown in.
CoverGirl BB Cream--Do we all love BB cream? I know it's a definite favorite of mine! Honestly, this is the first and only one I have even tried. I got a free sample of CG many months ago, loved it, and have never bought another brand for fear of it breaking me out or something. Is there another brand I should try??
Physicians Formula Mineral Wear--I have used this mineral powder for YEARS. I absolutely love it; it provides great coverage and wears well. It's a little more expensive than other drugstore options, but one container lasts me quite awhile! The brush it comes with is way too stiff, in my opinion, so I use THIS one.
e.l.f. Blush, Twinkle Pink--I picked this $3 blush up one day at Target, and I really have liked it. It has a little bit of shimmer to it which I like and always want in a blush, and the color is great for my skin tone. My only complaint is that it has some fall-out, but HELLO...it's 3 bucks! That's to be expected.
e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder--Yet another e.l.f. product and another one I love, too! This powder really gives a flawless finish and kind of works to "set" your make-up. I use the translucent for daytime, but the shimmer one is perfect for night!
Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste--This product is new to me. After hearing people rave about it, I put it on my birthday wish list, and my mom got it for me. NOW I see what everyone is raving about...this is THE BEST concealer ever. It literally "erases" every little thing and stays put all day!
Stila Rockin' in Rio Palette--I recently won this palette in a blog giveaway and have been using it almost daily ever since. I love the neutral colors, but it also has a bright blue shadow-liner in the palette which is perfect to add a little POP when you're feeling crazy ;) The lip color included is also great for a little change-up from my usual EOS lip balm! Ha.
Maybelline Clear Mascara--I have a confession: my eyebrows be CRAZY. I swear I have the eyebrows of a 70 year old man, but this stuff helps to tame the strays. Lucky for my peers, I do my best to stay on top of my grooming, but I still need a little help, and clear mascara is the ticket! Keeps those bad boys in line.
Maybelline Falsies Mascara--I've tried many a mascara, but this is the one I always go back to. Frankly, I don't see the need to spend the big bucks on mascara when there are tons of great options at Target. I love the shape of the wand, too!
There you have it, those are my SAHM make-up picks!
Are there any others than I'm missing out on and HAVE to try? Please, do share!
